Welcome

Support4yachts was as created by Oceanskies in order to provide yacht owners, Captains and managers with ongoing shore-based support using the latest technology. The founders, Tom Becker, Adrian Ogier and Duncan Swanson of Oceanskies have more than 40 years experience in the marine and yachting industry and understand the regulations, difficulties and challenges faced by yacht owners, captains and operators.

Support4yachts has designed and built a web based application (S4Y) specifically designed for use by iPads, iPhones as well as Android portable devices and allows owners, captains and managers of yachts to manage a yacht's operating and safety procedures in a secure, efficient and paperless environment. The application allows multiple users access to the yacht's latest procedures as well as logs of all completed checklists, forms and drills. All completed checklists and forms are stored in .pdf and .csv format providing users with total flexibility.

The Support4yachts application (S4Y) also allows owners, captains and managers the ability to complete drills and checklists in offline mode when they outside of internet range. All data is synchronised with the shore based server when the device used to record the information reconnects to the internet.

Support4yachts simply and efficiently assists yacht owners and crew to implement the best safety practices, meeting and exceeding existing regulations and avoiding possible detentions and fines.
